Winter Program Overview

The Adaptive Sports Association’s (ASA) winter program has been providing adaptive skiing, snowboarding and a variety of “sit-ski” instruction to people with disabilities for over 30 years. Lessons are typically one-on-one and are offered to people with every type of disability. State-of-the-art equipment and instruction, as well as a “family” atmosphere are hallmarks of ASA’s winter program.

We run both full and half day private lessons from opening day to closing day at Purgatory Resort. Purgatory has beet rated “Top Family Friendly Resort” by Family Travel Magazine along with “Top Value Ski Spot” in North America by TripAdvisor.
